    Notre Dame improves to 6-0 with win over Wisconsin

    MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Megan Duffy scored 20 points to lead Notre Dame (No. 12 ESPN/USA Today, No. 11 AP) to a 77-72 victory over Wisconsin on Sunday.

    Lindsay Schrader added 13 points and Melissa D'Amico and Tulyah Gaines each scored 11 for the Irish (6-0), who won their first six games for the fourth time in school history.

    Duffy shot 6-for-6 from the foul line and scored eight points in the final two minutes as Notre Dame pulled away from the Badgers (4-3).

    D'Amico fed Breona Gray for a 3-pointer and then hit a jumper as the Irish broke a 62-62 tie, the seventh tie of the second half.

    Wisconsin pulled within 67-65, but Duffy and Gaines countered with baskets. The Badgers closed within three points twice in the last 30 seconds, but Duffy answered with a pair of free throws each time.

    Jolene Anderson scored 16 points for the Badgers, who got double-figure scoring by four players.

    Notre Dame was without coach Muffet McGraw, who was ill and did not make the trip from South Bend.
